Industry commentators recognise Lex Deak as one of the leading investment experts in the UK. The 34-year-old serial entrepreneur founded ‘super-angel investment club’ QVentures with David Mickler and Quintessentially’s Aaron Simpson. It provides the market with ‘a single access point, a beautiful interface’ to encourage greater capital flow. The company is expanding into 60 international satellite offices, and has raised over £40 million for 30 companies. Deak has also launched Off3r, ‘the marketplace for the modern investor’, which gives access to fast-growing companies on an online platform. A good angel, he says, is well-equipped with a varied balanced portfolio, and is able to ‘roll with the punches’.
